How does sharing Suzanne Forbes’ Free Art work?
I use that money to live-draw diverse, queer, kinky, sex-positive, human moments of people living, performing, dancing and loving in Berlin.
I post my drawings as Free Art. They’re free to use and share, as long as you credit me in writing as the artist.
My mission is to be inclusive, representative, and supportive of all gender identities and consensual lifestyles.
The vast majority of my drawings are licensed Creative Commons Attribution NoDerivs NonCommercial.
That means if you credit me as Suzanne Forbes, artist, you can use them for any non-commercial purpose.
Share them anywhere, use as your twitter avatar, print out and frame at home, put on your holiday cards, show posters, instagram, whatever!!
(and in digital media, pls link to my blog, www.chipinhead.com)
(and if you have extra time or energy, to my Instagram, SuzanneForbesArtist. I don’t have Facebook.)
You don’t need to ask, it’s Free Art.
But you do need to respect the license terms and credit me.
Need art with trans folx making out for a poster for a queer event? I’m happy for you to use one of mine. They belong to the community!
Musicians, artists, performers, business owners, if you or your business are depicted in the drawing you’re welcome to use it to promote yourselves, on t-shirts or albums or posters for your own profit, just credit me 🙂 for fucks’ sake, just credit me. It’s a dick move not to.
If you want to color them in with Photoshop or remix them with some other art, don’t. That’s what NoDerivs means.
My event drawing is made possible by Patreon, a subscription service to support artists.
My Patrons pay me money every month to make art. So if you share my Patreon link and encourage people to support my work documenting Berlin life it will help me buy food! You can contribute as little as a dollar/euro a month!
I don’t use photographs and I don’t make drawings from photo reference. I have to be there to draw. Sorry!
Want to buy an original drawing that I made at an event? They’re 50 euros. I don’t ship them unless you pay me another 50 bucks, I hate shipping things.
My drawing of you makes you unhappy? I’ll take it down, just ask! Want a higher res file? Just ask. Want me to update how you’re linked to or credited? Just ask!
Can’t be bothered to include my full name, as artist, and the link to my site? FUCK YOU!
I’m a fairly nice person, but I am from New York, and I will dog walk you.
You know who’s amazing about using my full name, as artist, and links to my site and Patreon? Alfred Ladylike, (Patreon here) with the rainbow hair below, and Rah Hell, on drums for The Erinyes & Feline & Strange.
